    Hey guys, I'm looking to order a custom built flight case to house my Sunn 300T. I posted a thread about this in the Miscellaneous forum, but only got two responses, so I thought I'd throw it on here and see what happens. Quotes have been astronomically expensive so far, so I'm looking for something a little cheaper (anything less than 300 is considered cheaper), but mostly I'm just looking for companies that fellow TBers have gone through for their stuff and had good experiences, good turn around time, etc. So let me know some companies for flight cases that either you have dealt with, or you have known people who have dealt with. Thanks!

    Oh, a picture for good measure ;)

    Alright thanks, I've e-mailed them now.

    Here are the people I've gotten quotes from so far:

    classiccases.net (people who made my 8x10 case)

    Bring it on, I need more companies!

    I had a case made by Anvil for my V8. I forget what the total was with the removable casters, but as I recall, the price without casters was under $300. It is a really great case, IMHO. Here are some photos:

    Yea, I'd be interested in a flight case for my Sorado so I am not so worried about transporting it.

    Thanks guys. I just e-mailed Anvil and Ryan. Keep em coming. That V8 looks great in that case. Unfortunately I have to do either a lift off style case, or a front and rear panel type of case (kind of like a rack), or else I'd never get the Sunn out of the case (only has side handles).
